Professionals, managers and executives will soon be able to learn how to deal with global volatility, uncertainty and ambiguity at a new Centre for Systems Leadership set up by the Singapore Institute of Management. Working professionals in the social sector will have up to 90 per cent of their course fees subsidised.
The Centre for Systems Leadership, which was launched by Manpower Minister Josephine Teo, will also offer its programmes on systems thinking to youth leaders and its final-year student leaders doing their undergraduate studies. Programmes will start from February next year, and will range from 30 hours to 18 days long. Organisations and businesses, including small and medium-sized enterprises, can also have programmes customised to their needs.
SIM intends to set aside $1 million to fund up to 90 per cent of the programme fees for the social sector. The centre also plans to work with philanthropic organisations such as Temasek Foundation as its programme partners, and other institutions with common goals and objectives.
